The National Patient Safety Consortium Education Working Group is very pleased to launch the Patient Safety Culture Bundle for CEOs and Senior Leaders on CPSI's SHIFT to SAFETY webpage. A Working group of partners, co-led by the Canadian College of Health Leaders (CCHL) and HealthCareCAN, were brought together to establish this framework.
Through a literature review of more than 60 resources, a Patient Safety Culture Bundle has been created and validated through interviews with Canadian thought leaders. The Bundle is based on a set of evidence-based practices that must all be applied to reliably deliver good care.
The key components required for a Patient Safety Culture are identified under three pillars:
ENABLING - ENACTING - LEARNING
Within each pillar are links to valuable tools and resources to help healthcare leaders establish and sustain a patient safety culture. Our intent is to establish links to helpful resources for each practice listed within the bundle. We are asking for your help in contributing any resources that can be linked to the elements within the Bundle. These resources can be in any form: video, tool, policy, procedure, program description, framework, etc.
We are committed to providing a robust framework to advance a safety culture. The Bundle is a dynamic tool that will be continually updated. We invite you to the check back often for more links and resources.
